If I could go back in time, I would do things differently. I would not make the same mistakes twice. Poisonous words from my lips would be silenced. He would have been denied access to my life, but he would still never give up. And I canít change things unless I die.
The circuit of life and death goes round and round. Time spins across their distance. Lives twist and turn, and turning points fall against the walls of change. And around and around we go until we reach this circuitís end, but is it the end? Or have we gone back to the beginning?
The eyes of time blink, and life becomes out of focus. Future blurs into past, and the present fades out. And as eyes readjust, life reflects yesterday, and tomorrow is a million miles away.
The future ahead of her was bitter, heartbreak, but why walk back into what she left behind? Why live through that all over again? All she had to do was turn him away, close that door, and try someone else, but that was easier said than done. And he would not give up so easily, and how could she deny a love that once was real?
And how would she return home? She was living Science-Fiction, but she found one to confide in. But despite theories and observations, she remained stuck in the past, and then the phone rang. The memory of her grandparents broke her heart, but they were living today. And she had a chance that she was once lost to see them again, and the thought of returning home disappeared.
Wrapped in the warm embrace of love, Peggy Sue confided in her grandparents of her dilemma. At first, they seemed confused, but then they understood the truth that flowed through her. And with her grandfatherís help, she would return home, but time would not send her back so quickly. There was one loose end left that her heart needed to hold and to heal, the love of her life.
Peggy Sue Got Married is a beautiful tale that reflects our inner most desire to go back and do things over again, but as one young womanís life goes into instant replay, we learn that some things are meant to be. And no matter how hard we fight to change our life, our fate, we realize that if things did change, we would not be who we are today, and the life that we lived would become nothing but a dream. And second chances are best left to the future, where past mistakes can be put to rest and the slate can be wiped clean, and the drama of this tale leaves its touch lingering along our heart.
